To summarize as a Korean

It’s a great place to come by bus and take pictures.

The hanoks feel a bit small.

Rather, it’s better to enjoy a traditional Korean tea at a traditional teahouse in the temple viewing area of Jingguansa Temple, and see the temple.

There is no specific place to eat
You can eat elsewhere and then take a short walk around the area to take photos.

Let’s go to Eunpyeong Hanok Village with Loah@…@

It’s easy to get here from anywhere in Seoul.

If you take the subway, get off at Gupabal Station on Line 3 and take Exit 4.

((South Korea’s public transportation system is well developed, but can be difficult for foreigners to navigate.))

Take Subway Line 3, Gupabal Station, Exit 4.

The big building on the left is Lotte Mall (large shopping center). You will probably exit there.

When you come out, there are 3 possible bus stops in the same direction, and you should go to the center of them.

and take green bus 7211 or 7723.

korea bus

If you get back on the bus within 30 minutes of exiting, you’ll be transferred and won’t have to pay to get back on.

However, if you do transfer, you may be charged a small fee for the extra distance.

The bus ride takes about 11 minutes and you can get off at the 7th stop.

Bus Stop name is = “Hana high school, Samcheonsa, jingwansa entrance”

If you’re not sure, just ask a local Korean to say “Hanok Village” and they’ll be able to tell you almost 90% of the time.

If you look closely at bus stops in South Korea, you’ll see a sign like this, saying that bus 7723 will arrive in 6 minutes.

At the bottom, the 701 bus is coming soon. There are no passengers on it, which means there’s plenty of room.

If you want to take the subway, you’ll need to transfer to a bus at Gupabal Station on Line 3, or if you’re just coming from the beginning.

If you’re coming from Seoul Station, you can take the blue 701 bus to get there without transferring.

If you don’t know how to get there, leave a comment and I’ll let you know.

Many Koreans visit on weekends, but weekdays are usually quieter.

It is best to use the CU convenience store on the left and take a quick photo at the hanok village behind CU.

Loah is wearing a hanbok and giving off a hanok vibe!

You can do this too, but there is no place here that rents hanboks,

I wish I could help you with that.

Take a quick photo in this diverse hanok village,

and then cross over to the next block

you’ll find a wooden deck.

You can take some pretty pictures here too


It usually takes about 30 minutes.

Take a picture like this and continue walking upwards to Jingguansa Temple.

Along the way, there is a large cafe where you can take a break and continue on your way.

Of course, if you want to see more, head straight to Jingwansa Temple!

There is also a clean restroom in the middle that looks like this!

It is always repaired and maintained, so it is very clean. ((In the photo, there are construction supplies because the restroom is being renovated))

Korea has a lot of free restrooms everywhere.

If you continue up the road, you will come to a parking lot, and the top of it is Jingansa Temple.

Most Koreans come here by car.

It takes about 4 to 5 minutes to walk here from Hanok Village.

You can even climb it with a stroller like this

The view is amazing and you can feel the Buddhist culture of Korea.

jingwansa temple

A short distance up the road, you’ll see a building that looks like this.

This is a building that is open to the public.

Many tourists take pictures here.

A few days later, the biggest Buddhist religious event in Korea was taking place, so I put up these decorations.

It doesn’t happen every time, but at the end of May, they have an event like this.

We went to take some photos for the site, and they were having an event, so we joined in.

If you want to take a look around, you can probably spend 20 to 30 minutes here.

On the way up, there’s a traditional tea shop.

They sell traditional Korean tea.

If you have time, it’s a great experience to try some traditional Korean tea here.

Don’t worry, there are restrooms everywhere.

Don’t worry, you can drink water like this!

Oh, and there are two secret roads that foreigners don’t need, but Koreans do!

Koreans love valleys in the mountains.

If you go a little further up the mountain

From here, the hiking trail begins.

Many people hike here, but the valley is right next to it, so Koreans often take a dip here in the summer.

If you’re visiting Korea in the summer, a quick look at this place is sure to cool you down.

If you’ve seen everything up to Jingwansa Temple,

Now, if you go straight down again, you’ll see the restroom that I showed you above.

There is a path that goes down from there.

Down the road to the right is another trail, where you’ll find people taking a leisurely stroll and

and Koreans playing in the valley.


It is convenient to take a stroller everywhere.

Even here, you can walk around for about 30 minutes and feel refreshed.

To get back on the bus, simply take the same route across the street from the stop where you got off.
